Chelsea vs Spurs - 16:30
Top of the Premier League, with a perfect record away from home, Tottenham Hotspur are flying.
While they struggled for consistency last season, things look to be clicking for Spurs under Jose Mourinho. Harry Kane’s threat dropping deep as a playmaker, coupled with their solidity in midfield and firepower up top thanks to Son Heung-min has seen them lose just once so far this season.
Chelsea sit just two points off Spurs in third and their form is hugely impressive too. Frank Lampard’s side have won their last six matches in all competitions and the arrival of Edouard Mendy has helped them keep four clean sheets in that time.
Both Spurs and Mourinho as an opposition manager have a poor record at Stamford Bridge, but if ever there were a time to buck that trend, it has to be now.
The last meeting between these two in the league saw Chelsea prevail as 2-1 winners, while Spurs got the better of them at home on penalties in the EFL Cup.
This Tottenham team beat Man City 2-0 last weekend and their 6-1 thrashing of Man Utd at Old Trafford hasn’t been forgotten. There’s no doubt that they’re capable of stepping up to the big occasion, and the narrative around Mourinho, Lampard and Chelsea in this game only adds to that.
You can’t ignore the head of steam being built up by this Spurs side and Jose Mourinho will be chomping at the bit for this fixture. There’s a well organised backbone to this side and if Son and Kane continue their unplayable form, they’ll be difficult to stop.
For that reason, the 13/5 for Tottenham to win has to be worth a shot here.
